On May 16th, the company OnePlus announced the release of its new flagship phone, the OnePlus 6. One Plus also made a jab at Apple for its removal of the headphone jack.
“Just one thing though. I wonder. If you can connect your earphones using Bluetooth, you don’t need a headphone jack anymore, do you?” – Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder
In addition the OnePlus 6 adopts the notch, a design concept created by Apple.
The phone features a 6.28-inch AMOLED display with minimal bezels and a small notch positioned at the top. This indent houses the ambient light sensors and front-facing camera, however as OnePlus has not yet been able to replicate the TrueDepth camera system from the iPhone X, the notch is significantly smaller.
Similar to the iPhone D, it features an all-glass body, in conjunction with two vertically positioned rear cameras and a fingerprint sensor, as its facial recognition features are 2D rather than 3D, consequently is not sufficiently secure to replace passwords.
The OnePlus 6 utilises a Snapdragon 845 processor, Qualcomm’s latest, and includes 6 to 8 GB of RAM, in addition to a minimum of 64GB storage space.In terms of RAM it outclasses Apple’s iPhone X, which has only 3GB of RAM, although Apple devices generally use hardware more efficiently.
In keeping with their poking fun at Apple, OnePlus continues to offer a headphone jack in the OnePlus 6, but decided not to ship the smartphone with the $69 OnePlus Bullet Wireless headphones.
